29 Years with Disability & Chronic Pain
I lost my dominant arm in a motorbike accident when I was only 17 years old. It definitely was one of those ‘Shit Happens‘ days.
I’m now a very happily married man and Father of Olly our extremely cute son who is now 4.
My site OneArmedGraphics serves a dual purpose. I blog here about my experiences living with chronic pain & disability and mental health issues, my tips on how to things one-handed. The second purpose is regarding my side-gig, which is making and selling a huge range of things with my laser-cutting machine.
These are some of the images I’ve created or photographs taken over the years.
Life is hard, sometimes very hard. The suffering we endure can be immense and the challenges living life missing a limb can also be great. It has been my pleasure over the years to have answered questions by fellow arm amputees, first-time parents or sufferers of chronic pain. (Or their spouses)
I have been very close to the edge at times when all of these factors collided in a firestorm of suffering and negativity.
It is my great hope that by showing others what I have been through, can help them endure their own tough times. I am only too pleased to share the many tools, techniques and tips I’ve found or created in the Quarter-Century I’ve been at it.
